An access log is a comprehensive list of all the files which were accessed by the visitors of a given site. Every file that was requested for whatever reason will be listed, so if you have a single webpage with three embedded pics, one video and one embedded text file, as an example, the access log will contain a total of 6 entries - one for each of the 6 files which were accessed when the site visitor opened the webpage. A log normally contains the file name and path, the date, along with the visitor’s OS, worldwide web browser and IP address. Sometimes you can also find the referrer sites that sent the visitors to your Internet site. The data an access log file includes is in human-readable plain text format. It can also be processed by special software on a desktop machine and used to prepare reports on the performance of a website, independent of the web stats that your web hosting server may have generated.
Access Log Manager in Website Hosting
If you opt for one of our website hosting packages, you’ll receive thorough access logs for all of your websites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section where you will see a complete list of the domain names and subdomains that you have added or created within the hosting account. You will simply have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of every hostname and our cloud platform shall start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will need to follow the same exact steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains could be managed separately and at any time. You will find a download link inside the Logs section of the Control Panel for any log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your desktop or notebook and view it or use it via some log processing software.
